President Joe Biden (D) tweeted yesterday that "MAGA House Republicans are threatening a default that that could cost us millions of jobs and trigger a recession," while they protect tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations. U.S. Rep. Mark Alford (R-Raymore) says President Biden is the one threatening default, saying the House passed a debt ceiling raise. President Biden and U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-California) will meet this afternoon on the debt ceiling, ahead of the deadline. Congressman Alford spoke about the issue in detail this morning on 939 the Eagle's "Wake Up Mid-Missouri". His district includes part of Columbia as well as Hallsville, Sedalia, Clinton, Fort Leonard Wood and Waynesville. He also supports bipartisan efforts to keep AM radio in new cars, noting the numerous rural stations in his 24-county west-central Missouri district. Congressman Alford says AM radio is critical for rural Missouri news and severe weather coverage. He also says a new Columbia district office will open this summer:

The Columbia Chamber of Commerce has made the beautification of the I-70 and Highway 63 interchange a top priority. Residents have complained for years about trash and litter in that area. Others complain about panhandling in the area. Others want Columbia to consider what Warrenton and O'Fallon have done with their I-70 interchanges. Columbia Chamber president Matt McCormick tells 939 the Eagle's "Wake Up Mid-Missouri" that funding beautification efforts will be a public-private partnership:
U.S. Rep. Sam Graves (R-Tarkio) chairs the powerful U.S. House Transportation Committee on Capitol Hill. He joined us live on 939 the Eagle's "Wake Up Mid-Missouri" this morning. Congressman Graves tells listeners he supports bipartisan legislation to prevent automakers from eliminating AM broadcast radio in new cars, saying 90 percent of Americans are covered by an AM radio station or stations. He also says AM radio is critical in rural Missouri for emergency alerts, weather information and news. Congressman Graves also says crossings will be a key part of the final National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report on the deadly 2022 train collision and derailment in north-central Missouri's Mendon in his district, and he also weighed in on the controversy surrounding embattled U.S. Rep. George Santos (R-New York). Congressman Santos is charged in a 13-count federal indictment. Congressman Graves describes Congressman Santos as a "professional con man":

Missouri House Speaker Dean Plocher (R-Des Peres) says the Legislature could have hit a grand slam on Friday, but instead hit a double or possibly a triple. While he's pleased with the session, Speaker Plocher tells 939 the Eagle's "Wake Up Mid-Missouri" that some senators put themselves above the state on Friday, describing their behavior as selfish. Speaker Plocher is pleased the Legislature has passed bipartisan legislation to end state taxes on Social Security benefits. Under the bill, Missouri’s senior homeowners would be spared from rate hikes on property taxes. If the governor signs the bill, it would be up to counties to approve the property tax breaks for people 65 and older. Speaker Plocher is also pleased with I-70 transportation funding. He says he couldn't be more proud of his 111-member GOP House caucus and of the entire 163-member House:

He's referring to the chaos that happened Friday in Jefferson City on the final day of Missouri's 2023 session. The final day featured finger-pointing and GOP infighting in the Senate. Lt. Governor Mike Kehoe (R-Jefferson City), who's running for governor, says there are positives from the session. One of them is $2.8 billion to six-lane I-70 across Missouri. Kehoe describes that as a game-changer. He's also pleased with a bipartisan bill that passed which will end state taxes on Social Security benefits starting in 2024. That bill is now on the governor’s desk:
